John Edwards Doesn’t Want Sex Tape Destroyed

Posted by on Mar 03, 2012 at 12:37 pm

Who knows, maybe he’s feeling nostalgic and would like to have it to himself.

Ahead of his federal trial involving alleged campaign finance violations, John Edwards is asking a judge to keep a sex tape involving him and his mistress from being destroyed.

In a request filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Greensboro, Edwards asks that the court issue a stay in a settlement last week about the video involving Rielle Hunter and his former aide, Andrew Young.

Hunter sued Young and his wife in 2010 over the tape and other personal items the couple claimed she abandoned in a box of trash. Hunter lived with the Youngs in 2007, while she was pregnant with Edwards’ baby.

The Youngs agreed to give up their claim on the property, which has been in a courthouse vault. A Superior Court judge ordered that it be destroyed within 30 days of the settlement.
